Yes, I see it now. Thank you. I played a game which started with the same moves as the famous game, but my opponent played b6 to prevent Qb7. I see now there was no reason for him to play that move.

8.Qxb7 only wins a pawn, because Black then has 8... Qb4+.

Anyway, Morphy is uninterested in enemy pawns, it's enemy kings he savors. 8.Nc3 activates another piece for the coming attack.

I have a question about the game Morphy played at the Paris Opera. On his 8th move, couldn't he have played Qxb7 instead of Nc3? Isn't this a good move and if played doesn't it win the rook on the next move?
